The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd;

 the longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; 

nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; 

regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. 

All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, 

an eternal sunset of what we are.
